Don’t you just hate it when your coffee or (insert favorite hot beverage) goes cold? Ever reached out for your mug only to be greeted by lukewarm - or worse, cold - coffee? I don’t know about you, but I like my java hot.

The Mr. Coffee Mug Warmer is easy to use, and unlike other USB coffee warmers, is powered by an external power source.

Simply release the ball and wait for your answer – ‘Yes,’ ‘Maybe,’ ‘Definitely,’ ‘No way,’ ‘Try again,’ or ‘Ask a friend’.

Just don’t let your boss know how you're making your important decisions!

4. Stress Buster Desktop Punching Ball

Having a bad day at the office?

Can’t stand a “know-it-all” colleague taking credit for your work?

Keep your ammo locked and loaded with 6 slots for pens and pencils, and you’ll be gunslinging your way to your next promotion.

6. Dead Fred Pen Holder

Dead Fred Pen Holder

If a gun-inspired pen holder is a little too brash, then perhaps the Dead Fred Pen Holder might do the trick.

Sign-off on the latest report and stick a pen in Fred to subtly drive home your point.

Repeat as needed for an instant stress relief.

The Dead Fred is made of silicone rubber and is our favorite “Cool Office Gadgets” item for its super-cheap price.

7. Magnetic Levitation Floating Globe

Magnetic Levitation Floating Globe

Every successful executive needs a globe, but why settle for a boring, old-fashioned one when you can have a planet that levitates on its own?

This floating globe is made possible by magnetic suspension technology (absolutely no black magic is involved...I think) and features colorful LED lights to show everyone how awesome you are.

8. Blah! Button

Blah! Button

The Blah Button plays 12 unique phrases in different vocal styles and tones.

Leave the Blah Button on your desk to surprise a visitor, or take it with you to a meeting to prank your colleagues.

The Blah Button is battery operated and works just by pressing—you guessed it—the Blah! Button.

9. The Duck Tape Dispenser

The Duck Tape Dispenser

Have you ever wondered about the sound a tape dispenser makes? Ever wished someone made a dispenser that looks like a duck? Your wish is now a reality.

The Duck Tape Dispenser dispenses tape but makes it so much more fun. Now you can look forward to taping up your reports on your cubicle walls while making duck sounds.

Did we mention it comes in just one color? That’s right; the Duck Tape Dispenser comes in bright yellow and will literally brighten up your desk every day of the week.


Don’t take us too seriously. This is just some cool office stuff that will cheer up your day and put a smile on your face. They also make great gifts for Christmas; after all, who wants yet another boring coffee mug? We can’t promise that colleagues will love you for your floating magnetic globe, but at least you’ll be known as that guy or girl with all the cool office gadgets.
